Another card in blue, I'm sure everyone knows my love of blue by now! This time using the same Yale Blue Lustre print card again along with the silver lustre.
I stared by embossing a piece of the Yale blue using the Crafts Too sweet lattice A4 embossing folder. I then sanded back the raised pattern using a sanding block to reveal the white beneath. I then studded this with 5mm pearls at each junction on the embossing.
Next I cut a set of panels using the press cut rectangles die set to give a plate area in the centre. I then added the sentiment form my everyday clear stamp set and cut this with the matching mini tags die set of mine. The ovals in the set have 3 different layers allowing for a triple mounting making and small sentiment hold prominence.
I then cut the two largest starflower dies twice each in the silver lustre card and shaped these mounting 2 together to make the flower with a 5mm pearls in the centre.
I added these at the top and bottom of the panel with a spray of the matching starflower dies ( I love the fact that you get a mirror image of the leaves in each set making it easy to make a balanced set.
